    the Head Noun ''teacher'', it must be a Complement; and since ''French'' is further
    away from ''teacher'', it must be an Attribute. Hence, we correctly predict that
    the only possible interpretation for [''a French English teacher
    ] is ‘a person who
    teaches English who is French?. So our analysis not only has semantic plausi-
    bility; but in addition it has independent syntactic support.
